This game is super fun, at first I was a little confused as to what to do, but later I got it, and hard mode was definitely the most fun difficulty, my high score is 3220 on hard mode :D

Yeah. I don't know if you saw Tim play it. He had a very hard time figuring it out. I thought it might be confusing at first, especially if someone jumps right in and starts playing without understanding (or reading) the instructions. If I had more time (only had 6 hours to code it before the deadline), I would have definitely added a tutorial to it, and made the head flash or change color to indicate low energy. Also, the easy and medium modes were added in the last hour and I barely had time to try them before submitting, so they definitely need balance testing done. I'll be adding and fixing those issues once rating is over. Glad you enjoyed it!

This was not the game I originally designed as several things severely limited my time, so I whipped this one together during the last 6 hours of the Jam. Hope people like it. I will probably add sound, better graphics, and music later. Didn't have much time to test the difficulty settings added in the last hour, but I think they are somewhat balanced. Let me know. :) Also, if you find a bug, feel free to report it here and I'll add it to the list of fixes and changes to be made later. If you don't want to download it, there is a live version running on my server at Have fun!


After playing some more, I definitely need to work on balance a little more. Hard is the best mode to play on. The settings for Hard were the ones I started with. Easy and Medium were added in the last hour and Easy while still fun, I definitely need to reduce the energy gained from fruit. Medium similarly. Probably need to decrease the max energy setting in both slightly as well. Overall I'm enjoying it. Now to go see what other people have created as well!
